TULARE COUNTY, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — A man was killed in a head-on crash Sunday morning in rural Tulare County, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The crash occurred around 4:40 a.m. when a 2007 Chevrolet Uplander, driven by a 41-year-old man at an unknown rate of speed along northbound Road 152 north of Avenue 180, crossed into the southbound lane and into a 2020 Ram 3500 Dually towing a cattle trailer, said spokesman Matthew Tyler. Both vehicles sustained major damage in the wreck.
Officials reported that the man driving the Uplander was declared dead at the scene. The driver of the Ram truck was uninjured while a passenger suffered a laceration to his head and was taken to Kaweah Delta Medical Center for treatment.
The CHP said alcohol may have been a contributing factor in the crash.
The collision remains under investigation.
